I used a pitman arm puller or a similar puller. Left it on over night with pb blaster and the next morning I cranked the puller on tighter then whacked it with a hammer and it came flying out like a bullet and struck the oil pan.
It's a tapered bolt so you can try beating the fat area where the stud goes through to try and break it loose. Don't hammer on it too hard and mess up the tie rod.
